Three children were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where they succumbed to their injuries. CNN added that just three months into the year, today’s incident is the deadliest mass school shooting since the Robb Elementary massacre in Uvalde, Texas that left 19 children and two adults dead on May 24, 2022. Today’s violence also marks the 19th at an American school or university in 2023. “In a tragic morning, Nashville joined the dreaded, long list of communities to experience a school shooting. My heart goes out to the families of the victims. Our entire city stands with you. As facts continue to emerge, I thank our first responders and medical professionals,” Mayor John Cooper shared.
Avery Myrick is a Nashville local whose mother teaches at Covenant School and was present when the shooting occurred. “Just getting that initial phone call that she was OK, it obviously brings a ton of relief, but you’re still hurting for the people out there who may not get that call,” she said while speaking with a CNN-affiliate news station.
